Not sure how many people realize Metro North in Connecticut is subsidized. about $8 for over an hour ride into NYC. And they don't even hassle about the extra for peak as long as you are close. At least that has been my experience.

We were looking for Italian food in an outdoor setting in Princeton and found it here. Delicious food, beautiful setting overlooking lush greenery and late summer flowers on outdoor patio. The service was friendly and prompt and the Pre dinner cocktail was superb.

My most recent experience was typical of my usual experiences here--the atmosphere was nice, the service was fantastic, but the food was so-so: the more expensive items (in this case, steak and salmon, respectively) were quite good, but the cheaper things my family ordered (burgers)...More
